Probate Solicitor Leeds

Losing a family member is difficult enough and the process of dealing with all their personal property and finances can be tough but you don’t have to navigate the probate process alone. The Probate Network will provide support and guidance starting with a free probate consultation with a probate solicitor or practitioner in Leeds. With The Probate Network you can request a call online and speak with a probate solicitor or practitioner who is regulated by either the SRAICAEW or CLC.  The first twenty minutes of advice is completely free of charge.

What’s on offer?

You can use the call to talk to any number of probate matters including;

  • Assistance with applying for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to which are normally required to settle an estate
  • Expert guidance on the rules of intestacy, including how assets are distributed if there is no will in place
  • Professional assistance with tracing beneficiaries of the estate
  • Detailed advice on inheritance tax and potential tax exemptions, helping you to minimise the tax burden on the estate
  • Assistance with probate property matters, including property valuation and distribution of assets
  • Estate administration support to help you navigate the complex legal and financial aspects of settling an estate
  • Guidance on managing debt and probate matters, including how to handle outstanding debts of the deceased
  • Expert assistance with contentious probate matters, including disputes over the validity of a will or disagreements between beneficiaries
  • A transparent and competitive probate quote for further professional support, so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed with settling the estate.
  • International Probate: When an individual dies owning assets outside of the UK, in one or more countries.

What can you expect from the call?

When you choose to book with The Probate Network, you will be introduced to a compassionate and understanding probate solicitor or practitioner. Rest assured that the call you receive will not be a pushy sales pitch, but rather a chance for you to receive genuine and helpful advice to create a clear plan for your next steps. If you find that you require further support from a probate solicitor or practitioner, you are more than welcome to ask for a probate quote after the consultation or request one online at your convenience.

What happens after the call?

With the help of a Leeds probate solicitor or practitioner, you’ll gain a better understanding of your legal situation. By understanding whether probate is necessary and how to proceed, you’ll be more confident in navigating the process. In addition, you will be aware of the costs associated with professional probate support if you need it.

In the event contentious probate, the call can be used to provide an insight into the legalities involved in making or defending a case, your rights, and the costs of professional help.

We can advise on disputed wills, problems with executors or disputes between executors and beneficiaries, fraud, claims for dependent beneficiaries made via The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and queries about the validity of a Will. What we don’t deal with is disputes with solicitors who are managing the probate process (we don’t deal with professional negligence).

Why does the Network offer this service?

We believe that solicitors and practitioners should always offer some free advice, even if it’s just for twenty minutes. It enables you to decide if the solicitor is someone you could work with should you need further paid for advice. Solicitors and practitioners are not cheap so it’s really important to establish a professional rapport before any discussion of fees – the solicitors and practitioners on the Network understand this and are more than happy to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise with some free advice.

I used the 20 minute free service. The call I received was punctual and my three questions were answered fully and clearly. There was no pressure to progress to 'paid for' services. On that basis, if I do need further help with probate, I think I'd be happy to try them out.
Really really helpful at such a difficult and vulnerable time.He went through everything clearly and supportively

My appointment was scheduled and the subsequent call was on time. I had an excellent discussion with Keisha. She provided a detailed answer to my query and gave me a clear way forward.

I can't thank Lesley at Awakened Law enough for the invaluable advice she provides with regards the my late fathers estate. She was kind, sympathetic and answered all my questions.There was no 'hard sell' to employ her services, which, I have to confess, had been a concern.Thanks again to Lesley and The Probate Network.

I needed some advice on completing probate inheritance tax forms. I thought this may be a sales pitch but it wasn't. The guy I spoke with gave me some really useful advice which helped me to complete the all the forms which HMRC seem to be happy with. Great service, highly recommended.

Whilst I did get some useful advice this arena is more focused on selling the services of the solicitor who you meet with, and I felt the advice was not definitive because of that. My call was a WhatsApp video call which I wasn’t expecting. If you’re ready and presentable it’s probably better!

The agent was very patient in dealing with the multiplicity of detail that I supplied, and with the numerous questions that I asked. I sense that this patience caused the consultation to go beyond the allotted time, and that was especially appreciated.

Holly was fantastic. She contacted me prior to the appointment to ensure that the time was still convenient. During the consultation she was objective and informative. Excellent information, advice and guidance. The offer to answer further questions was also offered. An amazing service that really helped me when I needed it massively. Thank you and would recommend this to anyone needing support with regards to being left sorting out an estate, with or without a will. Thank you Holly

Often ‘free consultation’ means vague information and a hard sell so I was sceptical about this service. How wrong I was! They were absolutely brilliant! They listened, they gave me good advice discussing options and made sure I was clear about the legal position before finishing the call. There was no ‘sell’ and no pressure. Based on this experience they come acidosis open, transparent and honest and so, if things don’t work out, I’d be inclined to go back to The Probate Network. Superb!

Booked a 20 minute free consultation as desperate for advice - had no expectation of it actually happening or being useful but it turned out to be exactly what was promised - free, professional advice (and very useful) at the time slot I chose. Am v grateful - thanks.
